THE FERRYMEN Bring 'A New Evil' on October 11

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the release of The Ferrymen's sophomore album entitled “A New Evil” on October 11, 2019 - 
The band, featuring Ronnie Romero (vocals), Magnus Karlsson (guitar) and Mike Terrana (drums), have also released a music video for the title track. 
 
 
The Ferrymen released their debut album in June 2017 and took fans of the European melodic metal sound by surprise as they seemingly came out of nowhere. With songwriting and fretwork handled by ace Swedish guitarist Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall), the awesome vocals of singer Ronnie Romero (Rainbow, CoreLeoni), and drummer Mike Terrana (Axel Rudi Pell, Tarja, Rage) bringing the heavy metal thunder, the band quickly found their home in the hearts of fans of the classic DIO sound combined with heavier, updated songwriting textures and arrangements.
 
Musically, fans can expect in "A New Evil" a very heavy, melodic metal album fusing the songwriting and epic structures of the widely praised ALLEN/LANDE records (guitarist Magnus Karlsson was the main architect of the first three critically acclaimed releases) with the powerful vocal approach of Romero (let's not forget that Romero was hand-picked by legendary Deep Purple and Rainbow guitarist Ritchie Blackmore to be the lead vocalist for Rainbow's recent reunion shows). True heavy metal fans are of course quite familiar with the well regarded Terrana and what his drumming skill set brings to the table on a heavy metal album of this nature. And what metal album would be complete without some stunning artwork? Renowned artist Stan W. Decker's album cover rounds out this colossal heavy metal offering.
 
""A New Evil" is a bit heavier and more progressive,” says Magnus Karlsson. "I’m always learning and try to improve my songs and productions each time out. Working with Ronnie and Mike is a such a great experience. I can concentrate on the writing and whatever I will come up with I know they will nail it! This time Jacob Hansen (Pretty Maids, Volbeat, etc.) did the mix and it works really well with the heavy style.”
 
“I think it's a great album and people are gonna love it as they did with the first one,” adds Romero. “Everybody knows Magnus' skills to write great music, so it’s really easy to like every song on the album. This time was maybe even easier to work together because is the second album and we know each other better, he knew how to get my best performances, so I’m very proud about my work and grateful to have Magnus working side by side with me.”
 
"I have a few favorites like 'Don’t Stand In My Way', 'Bring Me Home', and 'A New Evil'. But a very special song for me is 'No Matter How Hard We Fall'. When you hear Ronnie in that chorus you will get goosebumps,” continues Magnus. Ronnie’s favorite is “'Bring Me Home', but I’m really looking forward to when people can hear the whole album because I'm sure they are gonna love every second of music on it!”
 
"A New Evil" will be a shot of adrenaline for all lovers of melodic metal, so mark you calendars for October 11, 2019!

Don’t Stand In My Way

TOM KIEFER BAND 'Rise' With New Album Sept 13

Friday, September 13, 2019
Categories: 
July 30, 2019 -- Timing, as the saying goes, is everything. And when you’re a career artist like TOM KEIFER, you know exactly what it takes to get to the pinnacle and just how precarious it can be once you reach the top. After years of touring and growing with his solo band, KEIFER feels the timing is right for a new record with #keiferband.
 
KEIFER with #keiferband--Savannah Keifer, Tony Higbee, Billy Mercer, Kendra Chantelle, Jarred Pope, Kory Myers—are ready to RISE to yet another peak in their ongoing music journey with the September 13 release of his second solo album on Cleopatra Records.
 
Pre-orders of the album are available today at www.TomKeifer.com
 
Preorder on all formats, including CD (digipak), vinyl (in your choice of red, blue, or green) and digital, which will include an instant download of the first single, “The Death Of Me.”
 
A video for “The Death Of Me”—written by KEIFER and his wife Savannah, and directed by Vicente Cordero--was released today. Though TOM KEIFER has faced many ups and downs all throughout his storied career, his unyielding resilience can be found well within the grooves and lyrics of the song. “We created ‘The Death of Me’ to inspire people not to give in to or be defeated by the seemingly insurmountable lows that we all sometimes face, but rather to Rise and overcome them,” he says.
 
 
His creative renaissance is fully on display via the eleven tough ’n’ tender tracks that comprise RISE.
Produced by TOM KEIFER, Savannah Keifer, and Kyle O’Connor, RISE scales renewed sonic heights. From the tasty slide work that stamps “Touching the Divine,” the nontraditionally arranged, heavy, dark jam of “Untitled,” the breakneck thrust of “All Amped Up” to the tender coda of “You Believe in Me,” RISE signifies the ongoing evolution of the former Cinderella frontman as a person, songwriter, and bandleader. It’s the aural portrait of an artist who, to borrow a phrase, is still climbing
 
“When this band came together, we all felt a bit like broken souls, each with our own unique story,” he explains. “If you ask anyone in the band, they would all say this band came along at just the right time. Every human who walks this planet faces challenges and extreme adversity they have to overcome. As a band, we feel fortunate to be able to face those things together. There is a piece of every band member in the ‘The Death of Me’ as well as throughout the entire RISE album.”
 
The common thread to each song on RISE is the intuitive interplay between each member of #keiferband, a tight but loose collective that’s spent the last six-plus years on the road honing their live craft together in support of KEIFER’s critically acclaimed 2013 solo debut, THE WAY LIFE GOES. RISE is the studio-bred equivalent of a band just now realizing the full scope of its powers. “We were trying to capture the feeling of what people have witnessed live with this band,” KEIFER explains. “There’s an off-the-rails, real live feel to RISE — and that’s what we were going for. It shows a real kind of angst and reckless abandon that we tried not to polish too much. And when we pull it back on the ballads, it’s more about the emotion, the soul, and making people feel something in a different way.”
 
“To me, the perfect rock and roll record is perfectly fucked up,” KEIFER says with a hearty laugh. “You try to make each record interesting and different. I don’t ever want to make the same record twice, even though there’s a common thread between them. Everything doesn’t have to be perfectly in place, but there is a balance you try to strike. Sometimes there may be something about it that’s technically not ‘right,’ but there’s a vibe, an energy and an attitude to it that I always try to preserve.”
 
THE WAY LIFE GOES - DELUXE EDITION was released October 20, 2017 on Cleopatra Records, which is an expanded compilation of his debut album chocked full of special artwork and bonus content, including the long-awaited studio recording of The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends,” which KEIFER performs at all of his concerts, plus a powerful new take on the Cinderella classic “Nobody’s Fool,” newly recorded as a duet with Lzzy Hale of Halestorm.
 
Upon its initial release, THE WAY LIFE GOES garnered rave reviews. To wit:
 
“A collection of 14 blues howlers, Stones-y rock and, yes, big ballads, the album calls to mind Cinderella but with an even more rootsy undercurrent.”
-- Rolling Stone
 
“…14 songs that stay true to form – killer blues-rock playing and tones, hooks galore, and strong songwriting. If you’re a fan of harder-edged rock and long to hear genuinely enjoyable new tunes, it may be just the thing; the opener, ‘Solid Ground,’ offers pure Keifer guitar and vocals with a feel reminiscent the Stones’ Exile On Main Street while the remaining tracks are, much like his life the last 15 years, an up-and-down ride.”
-- Vintage Guitar
 
“...the record features such vital, vibrant guitar tones and parts that are immediate and honest.  They also have that cool, interlocking, layered quality that made so many classic rock albums so, well, classic.  Keifer flat-out knows how to play vibey guitar parts with ungodly tone, and fans of the Stones, Zeppelin, Steve Marriott, and early Aerosmith should definitely take notice.  And, although you wouldn’t wish hemorrhaging vocal cords on anyone, this guy is singing better than ever to complement his great 6-string parts.”    
-- Guitar Player
 
In touring news, TOM KEIFER and #keiferband have been on a vigorous trek ever since the 2013 album release, and they’re not slowing down anytime soon. Their next batch of headlining dates start July 30 in their hometown, Nashville, TN today at The Cowan.

LOU DIBELLO Continues To Shred On ‘American Hard Rock’

Artist: 
Friday, August 2, 2019
Categories: 
Guitarist LOU DIBELLO certainly showed the world he is most talented on the six-string with his previous album, ‘Heat Wave’ (which contained the rocking highlight, “Full Throttle”).
 
On August 2, 2019, he will prove that its predecessor was no fluke, with the release of ‘American Hard Rock,’ which can be purchased here: loudibello.hearnow.com.
 
“I am excited to release the new album ‘American Hard Rock’! This record is both a logical progression, and a big step up from my last album ‘Heat Wave’,” explains DiBello. “Some of the highlights for me are the instrumental ‘Driving Force,’ with some of my hottest playing to date, and ‘Beast Mode: Engage featuring guest vocalist Carsten Schulz, and with bassist Mike LePond on both tunes. Other highlights are ‘The Nighttime Is The Right Time,’ ‘Walk Through The Fire,’ the bluesy ‘Love Is Blind,’ and my cover of Edgar Winter's ‘Frankenstein’ which I have been playing at live shows for years now.”
 
And it turns out that DiBello has been fine-tuning these new tracks on the concert stage. “Besides me singing lead on 5 of the 6 vocal tunes on ‘American Hard Rock,’ another big difference from ‘Heat Wave’ is that I have been performing almost all of these songs at live shows, and going into the recording process I had a much more complete idea of how the end product was going to be completed. From the final mix and master by Rolf Munkes in Germany, to the cover art and packaging which was a coordinated effort between myself, a graphic artist in NYC, and a local photographer and illustrator, I knew before I even began every step that would transpire. I even beat myself set deadline for completion by a week!”
 
DiBello is also an honors graduate from Musician’s Institute in Hollywood, California, and has been a part of the Central Illinois music scene since the late ‘80s. He has also played over 2,500 paid performances (with 600 coming in last 5 years alone), as well as sharing the bill with the likes of .38 Special, Slaughter, LA Guns, Molly Hatchet, Foghat, Quiet Riot, Survivor, Black Crowes, Blue Oyster Cult, etc. And as a guitar teacher, DiBello has given over 25,000 private lessons, and started one of the first streaming guitar lesson websites.
 
DiBello is set to be performing locally from now until mid-September (a complete list of dates are on his website), so get prepared to experience the impressive guitar skills of Lou DiBello - with the arrival of ‘American Hard Rock’!
 
‘American Hard Rock’ Tracklisting:
1) Driving Force
2) Jack & Coke
3) Walk Through The Fire
4) Love Is Blind
5) Flying High
6) Beast Mode: Engage
7) The Nighttime Is The Right Time
8) I Love You
9) Frankenstein (E. Winter)*

ROSS THE BOSS 35th Anniversary Tour For MANOWAR’S ‘Hail To England’

Artist: 
Categories: 
DAVID ROY WILLIAMS in association with DINNER FOR WOLVES presents…
 
“With 1984's Hail to England, Manowar delivered one of the quintessential power metal albums of all time” Allmusic
 
Ross The BossManowar’s co-founder and definitive guitar god, takes no prisoners when he and his earth shattering band pounds out “Hail to England” in all its decibel meter destroying glory.
 
Formed in 1980, Manowar launched an all-out assault on complacent boring metal. Bombastic, epic and above all exhilaratingly LOUD, Manowar sought to destroy all who stood in their path. Led by Joey DeMaio, Eric Adams and the soul-crushing guitars of Ross The Boss Freidman, Manowar broke the Guinness record for loudest band ever not once, but three times.
 
Now Ross The Boss is cranking the amps up to 12. Sitting proudly at #87 on Rolling Stone’s Greatest Metal Albums Of All Time, “Hail To England” merged the sound of the new wave of British Metal with skull-melting thrash intensity, and started punching holes in the membrane of the Universe.
 
On top of all this, fans can anticipate a slew of other Manowar classics, guaranteed to see fists raised to the roof, and leave ears ringing in utter metal bliss.
 
"We will bring the message of True Metal to our Immortal Metal Armies. We will deliver an experience only to be described as, true classic metal. We are going to devastate every audience, every night, without mercy.” Ross the Boss
